In Sharks class, morning lessons consist of Phonics, English, Guided Reading and Maths non-negotiable. Afternoon lessons consist of Phonics and Maths followed by lessons such as ICT, Topic, PSE or PE.

Topic themes change every term and cover a range of subjects such as Science, History, Geography, Art and DT.

Our PE days are Thursdays and Fridays. Children should come to school in suitable PE clothes. PE is taught both inside and outside so ensure your child wears PE clothes that will keep them warm.

Spellings are sent home each week on a Friday for your child to practice at home. There is a weekly spelling test every Friday in class.

We love reading here in Sharks class. We have a wide range of texts available for the children to access throughout the day as well as adults regularly reading to the class. Please read with your child every day and complete their home reading diary which can now be accessed on Seesaw. Books can be returned and swapped every Wednesday.
